Christmas may traditionally be a time to over-indulge, but Cancer Council says it doesn’t have to be this way.
To help us embrace a healthier approach to the festive season this year its offering delicious alternatives to the usual fatty feasts with the launch of its new free Festive Cookbook.
“It’s easy to get carried away with the array of sugary and fatty foods around us this time of year, says Cancer Council NSW Nutrition Program Manager, Wendy Watson.
“However, preparing some healthier versions of traditional holiday meals is easier than you think.”
Wendy says the new e-book is full of tips and tricks to ensure you don’t fall behind when it comes to eating healthy while enjoying the holidays.
The Festive Cookbook, free to download here, also contains over 30 recipes offering all the Christmas favourites, including roast dinners, seafood platters, summer salads and of course a Christmas pudding for dessert.
Here’s just a taste of what’s inside.
